The .38 Special has quite a history, spanning the entirety of its life from the day of its creation in 1898 to present day use. It was originally created as an improvement over the .38 Long Colt, which had been used as a military round and proven to be woefully inadequate, but it ended up being used far more outside the military. In fact, the .38 Special was the standard issue of choice for law enforcement agencies all over the country from 1920 into the 1990s, giving it a more than 70-year span of service with LEOs. Even though it’s no longer the standard issue, guns chambered in .38 Special are used as a backup weapon by quite a few members of law enforcement, not to mention its use by private citizens. The .38 Special is perhaps the most popular caliber of choice for self-defense revolvers, and if that’s why you own one, you’re going to need good defense rounds.
These particular .38 Special rounds are 148 grain, making them medium-weight. At this weight these rounds deliver the best of both worlds, remaining light enough to move at higher speeds while heavy enough to hit with a greater impact than truly lightweight rounds. These are Semi-Jacketed Hollow Points, or SJHP, and begin to expand immediately upon impact, decelerating as they mushroom to create a devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 750 feet per second and muzzle energy of 183 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense purposes.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from Fiocchi, you get 50 defense rounds. That’s just enough ammunition to keep your gun and speedloaders loaded and ready in case a self-defense situation arises. If you want to get realistic training in, which is highly recommended due to the greater recoil of defense rounds, order more than one box. These are new production brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. Fiocchi has been manufacturing ammunition since 1876 and has a solid reputation in the industry. Production takes place at their factory in Lecco, Italy, and all ammunition undergoes rigorous testing and strict quality control measures. Order now to keep your .38 Special ready for whatever may come.
